Waiting to Wait

November 28, 2006 at 2:26 am 2 comments

It really seems like it is going to take forever before we will have a child in our home. I keep reminding myself of my husband’s statement that, “It is only a few months out of an entire life time.” He is right…but it is so hard to be patient. However, I had better practice because we are at the very beginning of our wait.

Right now my husband and I are waiting to be “logged in” with the CCAA (China Center of Adoptive Affairs). Once this process is completed we will begin our official 14-15 month wait. Right now I’m not sure if this length of time is how long we wait until we receive our notification of acceptance as adoptive parents (at which time we would be given a picture and medical report of our child to be adopted) OR if this is the entire estimate of time in which we not only receive our documents but are in China going through the final part of the adoption process.

With the holidays here, family and friends are anxious to start the process of reading ourselves for a child. It just doesn’t seem like a reality, yet. But…wait until this time next year!! Then…then we will be ready for all the help we can get!

But, for now, we are just waiting to wait!

    How’s the Mandarin classes going? Practice that while you wait!!! ha ha ha ha. Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving despite the long drive. I have some friends here who were told they had to wait 14 or so months (starting in September) and they had almost given up. Two weeks ago they got a phone call and now they are in Peru meeting their child! Fingers crossed…

    […] not sound like a statement to be excited about but seeing that it is one step closer than “waiting to wait“, I’ll take it. We were officially logged into the China Center for Adoption Affairs […]
